Bali’s Best Snorkeling Trip (due to seasonal conditions not recommended June/July/Aug)
Bali’s east coast is an area less visited and so the coastal town of Padangbai hasn’t been affected by tourism like the south of the island. The sea here is the perfect temperature and being inside a short bay helps make the water calm and clear to see coloured coral reefs and so many different fish.
Upon arrival at Padang Bai village there is a chance to grab a good coffee, delicious banana pancake or sandwich from a café before heading the snorkeling shop to be fitted out with google, snorkel and fins. Just across at the beach an outrigger boat will be waiting, and you will be on the way to the first snorkeling site. The boat driver chooses the best start point for drift snorkeling to use minimal energy and to assist children and those who are not strong swimmers. Kadek, the guide will assist with the best locations to see most beautiful coral and turtles, so follow him! After an hour, time to jump back in the outrigger and cruise a few minutes to Blue Lagoon. Here is another drift snorkel and the best chance to see turtles! After another hour its time to head back to the boat and Padang Bai village.
East Bali is also famous for producing sea salt for Indonesia. An optional stop to visit a working salt farm is enroute to our lunch at Komune. At Komune enjoy lunch and a swim in the pool before heading back to your hotel.
What our guests are saying:
Snorkeling was fantastic!! Soooo many fish & so many colours & we were pretty excited to spot a sea turtle too, never know if you’ll get one or not!!
Loved everything about this day.
The snorkeling, the fish and having Kadek as our guide who helped me find four turtles. We were all starving afterwards so lunch, a swim, some sun and surfer watching was perfect at Komune.
Only one and half hours from Ubud, we still recommend you leave no later than 7.30am to have the best chance of seeing maximum sea life including turtles and reef sharks.
